Science Against Capitalism aims to bring biophysical science education into conversation with people and movements who refuse to accept the assured devastations wrought by the capitalist path. We will learn from those who have developed deep scientific expertise in the dynamics of our planet, our ecological systems, as well as the scientific and technological advancements of our people, in order to better understand how we can fight to build a healthy, equitable, and socialist future.

The relationship between language and the internet is one of underestimated importance – language profoundly affects users’ experience and the type of information that is accessible to them. Historically, languages of the global North have long dominated knowledge acquisition, creation, and reproduction, and this is still true in the digital era. Thus, the distribution of content is extremely uneven. As new forms of technology, such as artifical intelligence (AI), emerge, how can we use this to understand, and fight for, language diversity in the digital era? What does the democratization of knowledge from a technological standpoint look like and how can we use it to build a socialist society today?
Join us for a seminar with computational linguist, Michael Gasser, on the relationship between technology, language, and the democratization (and anti-democratization) of knowledge. Register for the seminar using the form below.
